I turned 35 back in June. I had a great day:
Ingrid and I got facials and our nails done and she took me for lunch.
Then we went to see her family. Her dad told me stories about his racing pigeons. Her mom stuffed me with tea and birthday cake – she made me a chocolate cake that she remembered I liked at their Christmas party! (Yikes, I am spoiled!)
Eventually I had to leave my substitute family. I went home and put on a party dress and my new shoes. The Egyptian took my parents and me to Jerusalem for dinner. The belly dancer came out at 9pm!
